Chip Kidd, during a tedious discussion of why there are so few superstar wymmynz graphic designers:

As a gay person I could ask the same thing – where are the “famous” gay graphic designers? (There are more today, but historically next to none.) Except I don’t particularly care. At all.

The most famous gay graphic designer raises a question about gay graphic designers, then vitiates the same question. Apparently it’s been decided: “We” are a non-issue. Nothing like being written out of history by your own kind.

I look back now on our conversation and I feel even more handled than I did then.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
